Coffee or Tea?

Good Morning! One of the main reasons I started my blog was to challenge myself to learn more and do more with a hobby that I loved. I saw all these challenges online that I wanted to participate in and thought that blogging would be a good way to do that. I know I have tried tons more techniques that I wouldn't have, just because they were a challenge requirement. And many of those things (like the center step card below) are things that I really enjoy and help me keep enjoying this hobby that I have invested so much into. I was not at all expecting the friendships that would develop from blogging. I would have never thought that people that I only knew online could end up being such good friends. I have met people that have encouraged me, wished me well, made me smile and opened their lives to me enough to allow me to encourage them, pray for them during hard times, send cards to their loved ones when needed and hopefully I have passed on a least as many smiles as I have been given.

A couple of online friends and I have exchanged little goodie boxes on occasion and this card is going into one such box. Most people I know are either coffee people or tea people. I love both equally. My friend that is getting this card is the same way, I think she loves both with the same amount of gusto as I do! So I have put together a little goodie box of some interesting teas and coffees I have found that I want to share. Since the box is full of coffees and teas, I wanted to use an image that went along with that and found this one that my real life friend Angela gave to me a long time ago for my birthday. It is a set from My Favorite Things called Tea for Two. The image was colored with Copic markers, the paper is DCWV I think, and I added some chipboard letters, and photo turns from my stash.

And I want to say a huge THANKK YOU to all of my online friends. In my last post I mentioned that I had hurt my back and I got so many sweet comments and emails wishing me quick healing and I wanted to let you know that they all mean a lot to me. I am recovering now and am almost back to normal.
